Short and Layered Box Braids Are Definitely In This Summer!
Short hair is still winning and if you think everyone is getting waist-length braids think again. Box braids are my go-to protective style for summer and last summer I really enjoyed my jumbo box braids. I went from maroon to bright blonde and didn’t miss my curls. This summer I’m going shorter (not wrap length) but bra-strap length because my hair is too long. I wore wrap when it was a new trend and I remember it taking forever (less than the time I had micro braids but longer than Poetic Justice braids) and the smell of the kanekalon burning and being shaped into the perfect layers. If you’re growing out a cut or have shorter hair this style should be on your list this summer. It keeps hair off your neck, am I the only one that loves my hair off my neck when it’s hot? It’s low maintenance and usually doesn’t take as long these days. Braiders are faster and braids are bigger. Plus is defines the face no matter your face shape.
